I've tried to do a little research on this artist and I've had one knowledgeable patron of our store look this piece over. Here's what I believe to be correct. This offering is for a William "Bill" Rank (1921 to 2000) original painting on Velveteen in what I believe to also be an original sponge painted frame. This original signed theorem painting entitled "Folk Art Theorem of a Boy on a Rocking Horse".
Features a a boy riding a rocking horse. This artist was an important artist for the 20th century resurgence of Theorem painting.His pieces feature classic folk art themes with folk and colonial still-lifes to include animals, children and landscapes. In this case I believe this painting to be an early painting of his because of the way he signed it (his signature changed in later years). The frame is also one that he often used and I believe it to be original as well. We have not removed the backing on the painting so I don't know if it has any markings, stamps or signatures as they often do.
If you have questions or need additional information, just shoot me a message. This framed piece measures approximately 18. ¼" wide by 16 ½" tall.
